Law enforcement agencies in Colorado are on the lookout for an alleged serial bank robber dubbed the “Glamour Shot Bandit” for her habit of sporting an array of hats, wigs, gloves and sunglasses to help hide her identity.
The FBI Mountain Safe Streets Task Force and Denver Police Department have asked the public for help catching the alleged thief; she’s been accused of hitting up six Denver banks from March 22 to April 9, according to a press release.
The “Glamour Shot Bandit” is suspected of robbing a Vectra Bank on March 22 and two Key Banks on April 1 and April 5. Additionally, she is alleged to have held up three banks on Tuesday, successfully stealing from a First Bank and a TCF Bank, and attempting to rob a Liberty Savings Bank, authorities said.
“During the robbery that occurred on April 5, 2019, the ‘Glamour Shot Bandit’ displayed a handgun,” authorities said in the press release. “Her level of violence is intensifying given the display of a handgun and multiple robberies in one day.”
The suspect is described as a slender, light-skinned black woman who is about 5-foot-5 and either in her 20s or 30s.
The FBI’s field office in Denver tweeted out a wanted poster displaying some of the suspect’s looks, as well as offering a $2,000 reward for any tips that lead to her arrest.
Authorities noted that bank robbery is punishable by up to 20 years in prison for offense, though that increases if a weapon is used to commit the crime.
